50 Cent Says DJ Pauly D’s Project Comparable To “Jersey Shore”

Posted in 1 on March 29, 2012 by bobbybounce

G-Unit leader 50 Cent has offered his take on DJ Pauly D branching out with his own reality television show and what his overall impact will be on society.

In Fif’s eyes, the deejay’s new “Pauly D Project” show has the potential to become as popular as reality show “The Jersey Shore.”

“Well, Pauly D’s show is gonna be as — I don’t want to say more exciting than ‘Jersey Shore’ — I’ll say as exciting as ‘Jersey Shore’ to maintain the audience that ‘Jersey Shore’ had by itself,” he said. “He has a lot going on right now, and they’ll get a chance to go into his world, as far as his DJing and a lot of things he’s actually doing. It’s a lot of the lifestyle. Every college student in the world’s gonna love this television show.” (MTV)
According to reports, Pauly’s spin-off will focus heavily on the music career.

The Pauly D Project finds the most likable member of the Sea-side Heights crew forging his own path in the world of disc jockeying. Opening with an introduction to Pauly’s home state, and the new characters who will accompany the tanned one on his endeavour – including bodyguard Gerard (Big Jerry) Gialanella, wing-man Ryan Labbe, road manager Michael (Biggie) Morgan, and executive club promoter Jason (JROC) Craig – the show gradually expands to include jet-setting and A-list cameos, as his fledgling career takes him from a Vegas residency to a record deal and, eventually, a tour opening for Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears.

Last January, the reality television sensation talked about linking with 50 to work on his upcoming album.

“Right now I’m working on my album with 50 Cent. Really excited about that because that’s my passion. Music is where my heart’s at. So, I’m gonna do some producing [and] come up with a compilation album with 50. I’ve always looked up to 50 my whole entire life. He’s always been a mentor to me, ’cause I’ve been DJing and playing his music my whole entire life. So, the fact that we clicked when we met was amazing.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
In early December, the G-Unit general opened up on taking a chance with the”Jersey Shore” reality star.

“When Pauly came by to see me, they had options. They had several places that they were going, and people that were interested in doing a deal with him. Obviously, the momentum from “Jersey Shore” was spun off into him being the first one to have his own independent series. They’re moving places and DJing in front of bigger audiences, and getting ready to make moves internationally, where the DJ is the star, overseas. When I sat with him, I saw the opportunities we could have moving forward, with brand extension and packaging the music…I look forward to it. I call him “the bridge.” He’s going to be something between what you would get from a DJ Khaled or a DJ Drama and what you would get from David Guetta.” (Rolling Stone)
The “Pauly D Project” premieres tonight (March 29) at 10:30 PM EST on MTV.

DJ Clue Rant Against Funkmaster Flex

Posted in 1 on March 25, 2012 by bobbybounce

New York City radio personality DJ Clue’s issues with Funkmaster Flex are far from over as the ex-Hot 97 deejay has gone off on an accusation-fueled rant against his former co-worker.

Talking to his Power 105.1 listeners, Clue accused Flex of shady behind-the-scenes tactics aimed at him.

“Gotta address this clown — actually, where I would come from, we call him a h*e. He a h*e,” said Clue in response to Flex. “That’s what h*es do. They b*tch and moan, and they make excuses that’s all you doing all day, for why you number two. And you number two because, basically, you’re tied for the number two spot. The station you’re tied with bills way more money than you do. … So really, you came in number three, buddy. That’s because you’re spending ninety-nine percent of your day worrying about what I’m doing, you’re calling labels, telling them, ‘Look, I’m not gonna play you artist’s record if you don’t give it to me first. If you give it to Clue, your artist is not allowed up at the station and we’re gonna drop all your records.’ Stop calling club owners, telling them, ‘I’ll do parties for free.’ C’mon, man, you’re embarrassing yourself. You’re doing parties for five hundred dollars, or you’re doing them for free! You think we don’t hear about that man? Stop calling all the clubs hating, man.” (Power 105.1)
A few days ago, DJ Clue denied speculation suggesting a beef was brewing between him and Flex.

“ThingsJealousyDoes,” he tweeted March 21st.
“I’d rather keep my mouth shut then be a d*ck rider or a liar. I’d Rather that.”
“And for the record..I don’t have “Beef” with anyone or anybody. Beef over Tv,Radio & Social formats is Corny.B*tch n*ggaz do that. I’m good” (DJ Clue’s Twitter)
Tuesday evening, Flex took to his nightly radio show to go off on Clue.

“I get the records in this town first! … This radio thing is NOT your arena, ok? … People only put their faith in you ’cause they hope that you’re the next Flex!… You can’t keep up with me, boy! … Fam, you got about 2 wins in 52 weeks and that’s what you get hyped for? You been losing for so long that that’s what you get hyped for? … Who you mad at, me or you, man? … I been doin’ this a long time. You can’t beat me at it, man. You make yourself sound stupid braggin’ about two weeks out of 52. Really? That’s what you got? … My radio game is at level 20. Boy you betta go back to the drawing board ’cause you lost tonight. … Classic loser status. … I know he’s good at what he does, man, but he ain’t better at this right here. … Now don’t let me have to talk to you like this again. You clown. … You listen to me good — I aint hold this crown for so many years for some boxhead cornball to get a record tonight that you thought you was gonna get. Now you just shut up. OK? … How many times does this have to happen to you, Charlie Brown?? You’ll never kick the football!! NEVER!! … Hot 97, I reign supreme nationally in this radio thing! Let me know if you want a lesson.” (Soul Culture UK)
Tensions reportedly rose when rapper Nicki Minaj’s new “Beez In The Trap” was supposed to debut on Clue’s weeknight show.

Funkmaster Flex went on an epic rant earlier tonight (March 20th). It seems Hot 97’s longtime HDJIC was peeved that DJ Clue–who handles his business at rival Power 105.1–was popping ish the previous night over besting Flex in the ratings. Then there was more chatter, amongst the bomb drops, about who gets records first in NYC (Flex claims he bogarted dropping Nicki Minaj’s “Beez In The Trap” first) and all that.

UPDATE: Whitney Houston’s Death Takes Unexpected Twist, Cocaine Found In Singer’s Body

Posted in 1 on March 23, 2012 by bobbybounce

Late Grammy-winning singer Whitney Houston reportedly had traces of cocaine in her body when she accidentally drowned last month in a Beverly Hills hotel, according to a coroner’s report.

The new twist to Houston’s unexpected death suggests cocaine may have contributed to her passing.

Whitney Houston died from an accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub, but the “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use” were contributing factors in her death, the Los Angeles County Coroner said in an autopsy report released Thursday. Houston, 48, was “found submerged in bathtub filled with water” and “no trauma or foul play is suspected,” the coroner said. The toxicology tests found other drugs in her body, including marijuana, the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril and the allergy medicine Benadryl, the report said. But these drugs “did not contribute to the death,” it said. (CNN)
Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina recently spoke on losing her mother.

The night after Whitney Houston died, her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown could not bring herself to sleep in her mother’s Atlanta mansion. That all changed the next morning. “I woke up and I heard her say, ‘All right, come home now,’ ” Brown told Oprah Winfrey in a TV special Sunday night. “And when I came back home, I felt humble, I felt okay.” The singer’s only child, 19, says she’s now comforted by the spirit of her mother, who died last month at age 48. (People)
The late singer reportedly left her entire estate to her daughter, making Bobbi Kristina the sole heir to the estate.

Whitney Houston has left everything in her will to her 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina. The singer’s will, which was signed in 1993, does not mention specific assets, but stipulates that all of her belongings should go to her surviving children, and Bobbi Kristina was her only child. Though Bobbi Kristina will be immediately granted ownership of Houston’s clothing, jewelry, cars, personal effects and other items, the singer’s money will be placed in a trust. Bobbi Kristina will get some of the money upon turning 21. She will get more at 25, and the full balance at age 30. (Rolling Stone)
She was officially pronounced dead around mid-February.

Police discovered “various pill bottles” in Houston’s room, TMZ reported, adding that family members said Houston had been taking the prescription drug Xanax, which is often used to treat anxiety. When combined with alcohol, Xanax can cause drowsiness. Houston was reportedly found in her bathtub — TMZ says her head was underwater — and could not be revived by paramedics after being removed from the tub. No alcohol was found in the preliminary sweep of Houston’s room, TMZ reports, but there were multiple reports that Houston had been drinking with friends the night before at the hotel.
